Express your joie de vivre with these stylish, Asian influenced hammer-textured sterling silver earrings. They feature five dangling teardrops, imbuing them with a sense of playful movement. Earrings are hung on sterling silver ear wires and are 2" tall (exclusive of ear wires). Says designer Dianna Badalament "Classical Indian jewelry is ornate with a lot of movement and dangles. When living in India and working to train our jewelry team there, I wanted to create something that would have a comfortably familiar aesthetic while teaching our artisans something new. In this case, the challenge was to fabricate such delicate and tiny parts, including the drilling holes so they can hang from the main piece. I had a wonderful experience working with the studio's peer leader to make the first sample of this joyful design".
I wore these silver hammered earrings to a luncheon and the hostess offered to buy them right out of my ears!! When I smiled politely, she insisted she was serious! Beautiful with lovely tear drop dangles that create movement. I held onto mine!!
